Transplant surgeons are trained to transplant organs from donors, whether living or deceased, to the patients in need. This includes liver, lung, heart, intestine, pancreas and kidney transplants as well as tissue, bone marrow and cornea transplants. Kidney disease, diabetes, cystic fibrosis and serious infections are just a few reasons you might need a transplant.
Your surgeon will consult with you prior to the operation for a pre-transplant evaluation and they will see you through your healing process to ensure you have no complications. Some surgeons get additional training and education on pediatric transplants to provide special care to children.

I was told I had a tumor and it was 90% chance it was pancreatic cancer, and I would need a whiipple operation. I did my research and found out the whipple operation was a very difficult operation and very few doctors were qualified to perform it. DR. KEOP is the top doctor in the valley. I am happy to say I am alive today because of Dr. Keop and his staff. HE IS A FIVE STAR DOCTOR.
Dr Koep is the most humble man I have ever met. he in lack of better words saved my life. removed contents from inside my body that had been left by a surgeon days before from a simple gallbladder removal surgery. I am so thankful for this man and every nurse I have come across in my stay here has had nothing but kind words to speak about him. I would definitely recommend to someone who was in need of his expertise!
What a wonderful doctor. I consider myself to be most fortunate that I was referred to Dr. Koep for the removal of a cancerous portion of my liver. This is the most talented, professional caring doctor I have ever had the good fortune to be associated with. I am now on the road to complete recovery, thanks to this wonderful doctor and his team.Thankyou all
Such a sad experience, I know a dr. is only human but he completely misdiagnosed my family member and did surgery when it was far too late. This caused more suffering and a quick death. To make matters worse, he was not upfront about the seriousness of the situation or poor prognosis. From everything else I've heard about the man, he's a spectacular physician but in our case he did our family member a major injustice. My prayer is that he learns from his mistakes and supervises his residents better. I want my loved-ones death to not be in vain but be used for improved patient care by the entire team.
